High Recommend
Ryan and Frank assisted me with filing chapter 7 bankruptcy. They were polite, non-judgmental and very clear on each step. The fees were comparable to others I had spoken to yet they seemed to have a better understanding of the law and my situation. I appreciate how they stayed in contact and kept me updated on my case, which was closed quickly and with no issues. I was terrified going into this process but they were so easy to talk to that I can't believe I hadn't just gotten it over with sooner.

Phenomenal attorney!
I came to Ryan in 2016 facing bankruptcy with $50k of credit card debt. He was able to skillfully negotiate debt settlement for me with 4 different creditors at approximately 40% of what I owed. I am now debt free and my credit score has jumped back to 730 and still rising. Ryan is easy to work with and his services are less expensive than many other bankruptcy attorneys in Grand Rapids. I am truly grateful for his help and highly recommend him to anyone considering bankruptcy.

Great experience in such difficult time for us
I searched online for a bankruptcy attorney and I was impressed by the reviews that Ryan had. All the reviews were correct. He was very helpful to us throughout the whole process. We had many questions, which he answered thoroughly (he would reply to e-mails at night, during the weekend). He is very professional and the whole process went smoothly. Bankruptcy is a very difficult time for anybody, but my husband and I felt that everything was explained to us well. I highly recommend him

Great Lawyer for anyone with debt issues
We were referred to Ryan and we will tell everyone looking for a Bankruptcy Lawyer he is so good. He won't pull any punches and always is reassuring when you have doubt about something. Very prompt and courteous, always gets back to you immediately when you have a question. Always very professional.

I found him on line I liked I didn't have to travel downtown Grand Rapids. I made an appointment to meet with him. He was very helpful and explained everything to me. I highly recommend him.

Great Lawyer
After talking to several attorney's (some who acted like they weren't even sure they could help me), I finally came across Ryan & was quickly convinced that he could help me with my situation. I was also put at ease by his laid back style, professional manner and he was never pushy or rude. He also always returned my emails in a timely manner & answered all my questions. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with a bankruptcy or other situations.

Extremely Helpful
Ryan helped make an emotional, embarrassing situation in my life bearable. He explained each step thoroughly, worked with me through all the paperwork and always answered my texts and phone calls promptly. Although we still have our court hearing coming up, I feel comfortable that Ryan will make sure we are prepared and organized before that time.

Stellar Legal Performance
I met Ryan through another attorney to handle my Chapter 7 event. I clearly made the right choice. Ryan is a pro. He provided knowledgeable and compassionate counsel, knows the law and is efficient getting business done. I would recommend Ryan Beach to anyone in need of his expertise.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
I searched Bankruptcy Attorneys this past spring. Two names came up with reviews I liked. Ryan was the 2nd opinion I got and the lawyer I felt the most comfortable hiring. He explains everything in great detail, answers any question, even if asked more than once. Emails are returned quickly. He goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable with your decision and walks you through the process. Ryan is in your corner and looks out for your best interest. I highly recommend him.

A lawyer recomendation
Ryan has been a friend for over 10 years. We went to law school together; I was a groomsman at his wedding. When I started my own firm four years ago, I urged him to follow the same path. My recommendation was rooted in my knowledge that Ryan is a person of great integrity and hard work. The same reasons why I support his firm is why you should hire him as your lawyer. He looks at every case through a lens of compassion and reason - and is not afraid to be aggressive. If you have bankruptcy needs, call Ryan!

excellent services
I've been referred to Ryan for multiple bankruptcy questions. He is always polite, thorough, and forthright with his responses. I would recommend using Ryan for both chapter 7's and 13's. He knows his way around the courtroom and you'll be sure to get the best result.

Chapter 13 bankruptcy Attorney | Oct 10
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. He skillfully represented a debtor in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy case, in which I filed an adversary proceeding on behalf of a creditor. In that case, Mr. Beach was a good advocate for the debtor but also paid careful attention to detail and to pragmatic concerns such that we were able to negotiate a successful settlement, ending the dispute between Mr. Beach's client and mine. I would recommend (and on occasion, have recommended) Mr. Beach to debtors who own businesses or who otherwise anticipate a complicated bankruptcy case."
